Beautiful Hillside! An amazing guest house which has been beautifully decorated internally in a Nordic style. A warm welcome upon arrival by the delightful Gert who runs the hotel with his family. A comfortable room (we had room 4) which had beautiful views over the gardens and sea. Breakfast is a relaxed affair with a choice of continental or a cooked breakfast - cooked options was perfectly cooked and presented. We took a walk around the garden and met the couple who help Gert manage the vast vegetable garden. Lots of interesting things going on from the cultivation of flowers to home grown mushrooms. The most memorable thing about Hillside was the amazing art - beautiful pieces adorn the walls and really complement the whole design philosophy. The guest house is a labour of love for the family - you sometimes feel that you need to take more care than you would at other hotels or guest houses but if you are a considerate person this place is heaven.
